CANTON, GA (October 4, 2023) – Did you know there are over 49,000 Veterans homeless in America? The American Legion Post 45, Arrow Exterminators, and other veteran-owned businesses have combined efforts to supply homeless veterans and others in need.

Last year, we collected over 5,000 coats, and more were needed. So, this year’s goal is to collect 7,500 coats, lightly-used or new, all seasons, genders, and sizes to include children. Jim Lindenmayer, Post 45 Service Officer and CEO of Cherokee Homeless Veterans Program, added that with the economy and inflation, our need is more significant than ever, and we are asking our community and businesses to help.

Where can you make your donation?

Any Arrow Exterminator location and Legion Post 45 Located at 160 McClure St., Canton, GA, 30114. Some of you may want to make a monetary donation. If so, please get in touch with Jim Lindenmayer at Our collection deadline is December 1.
